Spring in the desert.

A few weeks ago there had been torrential rain in the area. We had heard from some Saudis that an area called Al Agan near to the small village of Zita was very green so we decided to take a look. We were not alone as any Saudi families also wanted to experience this infrequent happening. After nearly 2 hurs driving we were rewarded with an amazing sight- the desert was covered in wild flowers and it stretched for miles! Naturally, with all this vegetation around the local Bedouin had their flocks of goat, sheep and camels grazing there. Being spring new additions to the flocks and herds were numerous in the form of kids, lambs and calves:) all in all it made for very pastoral scenes. I feel so lucky to have seen this other side of the desert.
